If you are like me, a bigger guy, you miss out on a lot of pairs of underwear out there. The sizing doesn’t go above 40, or 36 inches sometimes. BUT, your wait is over. One brand that is branching out beyond the smaller sizes is Xtremen.

Xtremen has been around for a few years. They got started by making boxer briefs and have added briefs, thongs, and jocks to their line up. But, their sizing was on the smaller end. No more, they now go up to XXX-Large. The 3X goes up to 42-44, while not inclusive to guys on the larger end, it’s a step in the right direction.

One thing I think many brands forget to take into effect is taller guys. I am tall and beefy. And even with losing weight, I think I look best at a 36ish waist size. When I was a 32 I was too thin. It’s great to see this and we have a few more brands following suit and we will see more brands create extended sizes! For that we say Hurrah!

You can find the new Xtremen Xtended sizes at the UNB Store Now!
